The Impact of Creativity Training on Learning Disabled Students' Creative Thinking Abilities and Problem-Solving Skills.
Jaben, Twila H.
The study investigated the impact of participation in a creativity instructional program on measures of creative thinking and problem solving with 49 learning disabled intermediate level students and a control group of 24 nondisabled students. The Purdue Creative Training Program was used as the independent variable. Analysis of verbal fluency, verbal flexibility, and total verbal creativity revealed the experimental group to be significantly higher in posttest scores than control Ss. Among seven implications for further research were the need to conduct longitudinal studies on the efficacy of creativity training with learning disabled students and to extend the training to different problem solving criteria.
